I like Caity.

I just love my little girl. She is perfect for me. With john gone all day at work, it is so nice to have a little helper and girlfriend.
Things I like about Caity lately:
1- she loves soft things, she loves fabrics and textures. right now she is hugging a fleece blanket while she sleeps.
2- she loves to cuddle, give hugs, and give kisses. Every mom's dream and Dad's future nightmare.
3- she can play with the big kids. a bump in the head doesn't phase her, she loves mimiking what the older kids are doing at the play ground, you can tell she is scared to go down the slide but the peer pressure from the 5 year olds makes her excited and the whole way down she watches them
4- she likes dressing up. we were trying on Christmas dresses in the mall and Caity would come waddling out and give everyone a hug look in the mirrors and smile and twirl and pat the poof of the dress. she likes crowns and jewelery- just the other day I caught her running from her bedroom back to her bath with all her plastic jewelry on so she could look at her reflection in the bath stopper... it is so cute, she is always asking me to do her hair and when I do my make-up she is always wanting some too. I love our girl time.
5-she runs away when I change her diaper...sometimes frustrating but I like it about her,I think it reminds me of something her dad would do...lets hope John never ends up in a retirement home.
6-she sings! I love her singing!
7- she dances! I love her twirling, swaying and squatting and head bopping.
8- i love how she helps me around the kitchen. from loading the dishwasher to cooking to sweeping. she is mommy's helper.

The list could go on forever but I should probably stop...she is just wonderful and I am so grateful to have such a wonderful little friend in my life. I just hope she doesn't get any older. or bigger. Just freeze- got it caity?

Camping...she loves the outdoors
she also waves at everyone she sees.
getting ready for church...
and naturally hanging out in a washing machine.

Caity sweeping on halloween.

Halloween! A couple months late....



So I learned this year how much more fun halloween is with a toddler! After a huge debate as to what our little girl should be John and I finally decided a lady bug was most suitable for Caity as 1- she was practically infactuated with them this last summer and 2- her nickname from her dad (besides gremlin, demon- we are working to get those out of the vocabulary) is Caity-bug. Fate just happened to agree with us when I found a lady bug costume for $2.47 I'm sorry but that is just cool. Naturally everything looks better with glitter so I had a little fun making my little lady bug quite the diva. I managed to bedazzle the kitchen floor and walk way up to the house while I was at it....but I was happy with the final result- I'm not much of a photographer, but hey Caity isn't much for standing still.

















Caity loved trick or treating! She would go up to the doors and knock and at first would run into their homes to take a look around. but she soon learned trick or treat ettiquite and was satisfied with dancing on the door mats, a couple times she would take a handful sort through it grab the smarties and lollipops and throw the rest back (even the twix...unfortunate child has no idea), everyone got a kick out of her, and she loved the attention.


John and I dressed up as nerdy athletes, we had a lot of fun and almost won our ward pumpkin carving contest.... here are some of the pictures...



ok, so if you thought that we dressed up like Special Olympics athletes....so did everyone else. But just for the record...we didn't. We are pretty cool right?
